a tea length dress

Finally sharing my graduation look! I wore this tea length cocktail dress for my graduation from business school back in May. Maxis are usually my go-to for daytime celebrations, however since I had to wear a graduation gown over my look for much of the day, I opted for a dress with a similar hemline. This cocktail dress did the trick! I have to say that it fit like a glove—no all day pulling and tugging like with many strapless dresses. Plus, the exposed zipper and sheer tulle hem added the ideal dose of edge to keep the look from feeling to precious.

 Special thanks to my love who I could not have made it through bschool without. We did it! Also how cute is his look?

    I’m a huge fan of dresses with open backs, as well as incorporating lace into a wedding dress. Thank you for sharing the inspiration!
